I've previously shown you the physical make up of my little Etsy "shop".
It's just small corner of our family room.
To check out how I organized all the "things" that come along with a shop, look here!
Now, onto the "business" side of things.
I use this term loosely, as it is more of a hobby for me.
But, have to keep it organized!
So, I started with an adorable green chevron binder on clearance at Target for $1.20
Then filled it with practical items I use with each transaction.
Let's peek inside.
On the left are stamps, business cards and a pen.
Next comes the paperwork. If have forms to fill out to keep things running smoothly.
It includes a place to list current orders
A place to keep track of current inventory and items I am needing
And a form to track my expenses....to see if I'm really making a profit!
You can download these forms for you! For free!
Next, in page protectors I have thank you cards w/envelopes.
I include a little handwritten thank you with each purchase. : )
Next are some plain white mailers for small orders.
Then my stash of bags for local orders
Lastly a pad of legal paper to jot notes and ideas
I'm a newbie at this whole Etsy thing, but so far, so good!
Keeping organized really helps me manage my little store, with work, home, husband and baby!
Any other Etsy shop owners that have any tips on how they keep organized?
